Not so rare, I also have a copy of the application here.

I have an information page, similiar to the one on the SSC page.
There's some different local applications, because the nomination
is similiar to the Silver Beaver and Antelope applications.

I have a form which outlines the award, but again, since this
is basically a Council-level award, there's a wide variety of
localize applications out there.

Or available through your Regional Service Center.

Or available through your Regional Service Center. Note that if
you request an application, all kinds of "flags" will start raising as most
folks that request an application are really
looking to nominate someone, and not just for "archival purposes".

I am negotiating with my wife (she holds the pursestrings here,
even though I have "override privs"..or so she has me to think!
*hehehehee*) and with two Scouters to port copies of those forms
as well as other Scouting items to their web sites. Give me
a couple of days, and I'll let you know where you too, can get
a copy of the forms/information. I'll also be asking you all
to please *keep me current* by filling the holes that are missing
(and you'll see them, when you find the pages!) by providing me
copies of what you have.
I think that I've got it narrored down to two web sites, one for
the Scouting items and the other for our business stuff (Jessiann's
right...I have a lot more Scouting stuff than I do
anything else, and it should belong someplace dedicated to
The site will have pictures of the actual knots, a brief description, and
(thanks to a lot of you out there), a link to
where you can get the application or more information about the award!
